Trends, fashion, celebrities, events, music, and all things only Vegas
This weekend is traditionally one of the busiest of the year, thanks to a certain pro football championship game that people love to watch in Vegas. This year, however, there's also a live UFC event, so there's a full slate of "kickoff parties" to choose from all weekend long!
It starts on Friday, Feb. 3, with pre-fight parties. Forest Griffin hosts at Lavo inside the Palazzo and RYU premium performance apparel is hosting a bash at Wynn Las Vegas' Tryst. OTM Fight Shops is holding its pre-fight event at Luxor's LAX.
There are plenty of football-related pre-game events, too, including the Super Party at Rain inside the Palms, the Big Game Weekend Kick-Off with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models at 1OAK at The Mirage, the Big Game's Biggest Party at Planet Hollywood's Gallery Nightclub and the Big Game Weekend Celebration at Chateau inside Paris Las Vegas.
On Saturday night, the UFC 143 After Party with Georges St. Pierre is at Tryst and RPM Nightclub hosts its Fight After Party with DJ Benji and Joel Madden. LL Cool J and Z-Trip host the closing party for Studio 54 at the MGM Grand.
Knockdowns, touchdowns and nightlife you won't find anywhere else - only in Vegas!
Vegas has always been a place for beauty, but that's particularly true this week as the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition supermodels are in Las Vegas to celebrate the launch of the magazine's annual best-selling issue.
Here's your chance to get up close and personal with the SI Swimsuit models, during two days of events that are open to the public:
On Wednesday, "Dining With SI Swimsuit" includes lunch from noon-2 at STK at The Cosmopolitan. A DJ will spin while fans taste some of the steakhouse's signature dishes and meet 2011 SI Swimsuit models.
On Thursday, you'll have three more chances to mingle with the models, beginning from noon-2 p.m. at Fashion Show Mall for "Swimsuit Talks: Fashion & Beauty." The Fashion Show will host a roundtable with SI Swimsuit models and editors, followed by autographs and photos with fans.
Another autograph session is set for 1-3 p.m. at Hard Rock Hotel's Hard Rock Store to sign autographs and pose for complimentary photos with fans. Then close out the day from 3-5 p.m. with a meet and greet event featuring Human Nature and the SI Swimsuit models at Caesars Palace. The festivities include a performance by the group, as well as autographs with fans in front of Rao's.
